Description
The CV90 is an infantry fighting combat vehicle which was developed by the Swedish Company Alvis Hägglunds, now a subsidiary of BAE Systems. There are two main versions, the CV9030 armed with a 30mm cannon and CV9040 armed with a 40 mm gun. Development of the CV90 started in 1984 and, following trials with an unarmed automotive test chassis, five prototype vehicles and turrets were built for extensive trials under a wide range of operational and environmental conditions. The Swedish Army placed its first contract for the CV9040 in March 1991, with the first production vehicle, a CV9040, handed over to the Swedish Army on November 1, 1993. In April 1994, the Norwegian army placed an order for the supply of 104 CV9030N infantry fighting vehicles. In December 2004 the Netherlands placed an order for 184 CV9035 series vehicles which were delivered between 2007 and 2010. In December 2005, Denmark placed an order for 45 CV9035 to the same build standard as the Netherlands vehicles.

Armament (CV9040)
Main armament of the CV9040 includes a 40 mm Bofors Defence 40/70B cannon with the ammunition being fed from underneath and the empty cartridge cases ejected out of the roof. The 40 mm gun can be aimed and fired by the commander or gunner selecting single shots at 60 rds/min, or automatic with 300 rds/min cyclic rate of fire. Maximum effective ranges are 2,000 m for ground targets and 4,000 m for air targets. The two-man power-operated turret is of all-welded steel construction, with the commander seated on the left and the gunner on the right, with both crew members having a single-piece hatch cover that opens to the rear. A 7.62mm coaxial machine gun M/39 is mounted to the left side of the main armament. A range of three smoke grenades discharger is mounted to each side of the turret. Fitted on the turret rear are two Bofors Lyran 71 mm mortar tubes which can fire illuminating bombs out to a maximum range of 1,600 m.
(Armament for the other versions is available in separate data sheet)
Design and protection
The hull of the CV90 is of all-welded steel armour construction with the driver seated front left, the power pack to his right, the turret in the centre and offset 200 mm to the left, and the troop compartment at the rear of the hull. The CV90 is protected all-round against 14.5 mm armour-piercing rounds. The later version of the CV90 are said to be protected against 30mm APFSDS. In option, the vehicle can be fitted with add-on armour to increase the protection against Improvised explosive device, explosively formed penetrator and 30 mm caliber armour piercing rounds. The CV90 can be also fitted with cage armour, which provides protection against tandem-charge and shaped charge warheads. The CV90 can carried eight infantrymen soldiers. The soldiers enter and leave via a large door in the rear that opens to the right, which is provided with a single vision block with associated firing port in the centre.
Propulsion
The power pack consists of a Swedish-built Scania DI 14 V-8 diesel developing 550 hp, coupled to a Perkins Engines Company X-300-5N fully automatic transmission with torque converter and lock up clutch and a total of four forward and two reverse gears. The CV90 can run at a maximum speed of 70 km on road with a maximum range of 320 km. Suspension is of the torsion bar type with either side having seven dual rubber-tyred road wheels, drive sprocket at the front, and idler at the rear with no track-return rollers. A track tension adjusting system is fitted as standard on the CV90 allowing the driver to adjust both tracks at once without leaving his seat. Friction dampers are fitted at the first, second, sixth and seventh road wheel stations.
Accessories
The gunner has a SaabTech Vetronics Universal Tank and Anti-Aircraft System (UTAAS) sight with an armoured shutter. The CV90 version has both day and night channels and a laser range-finder. The thermal imager is provided by Kollsman together with the fire-control computer. The CV90 is fitted with a nuclear, biological, and chemical (NBC) filtration system accompanied with a chemical detector and radiation detector systems. The CV90 also use heat-absorbing filters to provide temporary protection against thermal imaging (TIS), image intensifier and infrared camera (IR). The CV 90 was designed to produce a very low and very compact structure to minimize radar and IR-signatures.
